On December 16th 1946, Christian Dior officially inaugurated his Couture House in Paris, on the 30 Avenue Montaigne. Today, the Maison Dior celebrates 75 years of history, heritage and creative passion.​

I had stopped in front of these two adjacent hotels of the Avenue Montaigne, number 28 and 30. I boasted about the small proportions, the subtle elegance with no overwhelming ‘pedigree’, to the friend who was with me.

Dancing diamonds for me evoke a sense of joy, and happiness and liberation.

Deepika Padukone

Her splendid beauty and poise have made her a style and fashion icon. Her humility however, gives her achievements incredible substance. Above all, she remains genuinely affable. All of this while choosing to channel her popularity and influence and being solely responsible for transforming the landscape of mental health in India and around the world.
